If you're like me, you hate seeing the light source from the sides of Fire & Ice Lights. Here's a quick easy way to make shrouds for them to eliminate that problem. Cut down a 12 ounce Styrofoam cup to 2-1/2". Apply a couple coats of flat black craft paint to the outside. When it's dry, slip it over the light from the front and that's it. You'll have to squeeze the cup to fit the somewhat triangular shape of the light to get it over. No more annoying side light!

I hate the side light, too. The Gemmy spotlights have the same problem, but instead of a cup, I roll up some construction paper and stick it on the front like you have. adjusting the length of the tube also helps determine how much light is scattered around what you're trying to spotlight.
