1. go to google.com/contacts and sign in

2. click the app launcher icon

3. click “add a shortcut” next to the Contacts icon

4. you can move the icon using drag and drop

      

You can add similar shortcuts for other Google services: Google Keep, Google Sites, Google Groups, Google Play Music, Webmaster Tools, Patent Search, Google Voice.
