Simplest possible LED circuit?

I want to place small red LEDs into the eye sockets of local statuary. What do I need to buy?
A man needs a hobby. My thought is buy a bag of cheap red LEDs, a bag of coin-sized batteries, and some poster putty. Hook the LEDs to the batteries, slap on a dab of poster putty, and voila!--That statue that folks walk by without noticing will now stare down at passersby like a Cylon, at least at dusk and until the batteries run down.
Ignoring for a moment any legal and ethical complications to this plan, what are the technical aspects? I know nothing--nothing--about electronics. What do I buy and how do I put it together? How long will the lights last? Ideas for additional options are also welcome.
