I'd personally get the bus to the tube station and then use the tube all the way to LHR. It'd take about 1 hour and 15 minutes, possibly a bit less. Assuming you don't have an oyster card, a one-way ticket for the entire journey would cost £4 (if you have an oyster, you can get that reduced to £2 at particular times of the day).

This site shows getting to Paddington station to take the Heathrow Express, but if you're more budget minded you'll need to get yourself to the Picadilly line (takes longer though). Either way, read up on The Underground as TOLtommy suggests and make sure you understand how to read the tube maps - not only to get on the right line but also to make sure your going the right direction (as designated by the station name at each respective end). A little intimidating at first, but once you get the hang of it (happens quickly) it's alot of fun. Enjoy!

I had to do it last month when LCY was closed due to a AF flight blowing its tyres.
The way I did it was:
DLR LCY to Canning Town
Jubilee Line Canning Town to Baker Street
Bakerloo Line Baker Street to Paddington
Heathrow Express to LHR
Not the cheapest way but easy transfers when you have luggage: avoid Bank like the plague if you're pulling anything.
If you don't want to get nailed for the Heathrow Ripoff then change at Westminster from the Jubilee Line to the District Line (make sure you get the right branch - not Wimbledon or you'll have to change at Earls Court) then change to the Piccadilly at Hammersmith - cross platform transfer.
