at the end of the day just about anything that dries clear. Even elmers school glue. it will have to completely dry first of course, which takes days. If you happen to have a hot glue gun handy that;s probably easiest.

Most case manufacturers use hot glue to stick the LEDs in the case. I use it for even more than that, so definitely go for hot glue. Simplest possible way.
