While not a circuit you can build, I use the PICKit 3 to program PIC's from the same family. Find it works very well and is relatively cheap.
Don't drone me bro!

Agreed. You can spend a lot of time building the perfect programmer, or just buy a PICkit 3! There's currently a 20% off promotion: http://microchiptechnology.wordpress.com/2012/01/17/20-discount-on-pickit/ .

They're very cheap for what they are, and it's a tool you'll be able to use for years.

You can build your own programmer using an 18F2550 (or an 18F4550) but the catch is you need to program it first :P

http://usbpicprog.org/

These are good if you just want to program chips (no debugging etc)

If you have a parallel port on your PC: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=pic+parallel+port+programmer

Similar ones exist for the serial port too.
