You could consider using a "light pipe", "fibre optic" or whatever you
want to call it. Perspex or similar material will guide light from an
LED by total internal reflection. You could probably use a
panel-mounted LED, remove the electronics and just use the lens, and
holder so it looks better than it would be able do with just a hole.
