Airwick Gives up Shower Head or Swivel light

The larger size Airwick Freshmatic refill cans all contain a bonus 1:12 modern shower head or swivel light for track lighting, cunningly disguised as a spray nozzle. I haven't seen the newer mini units here in Canada yet, but they likely have a similar nozzle.
Remove the nozzle and cut the round part off where it meets the part that sticks onto the tube going into the can. Scrape off the bits left from the molding process (2 raised circles and the seam lines) with a craft knife and paint if desired. For a shower head, trim the stub so it is at a 45 degree angle and with a flat washer or bead slipped over to form a collar, glue to the wall. For track lighting, leave the cut end flat, glue a circle of card stock, a bead or a sequin over the end to conceal the hole, glue a small bead or piece of tubing to the lamp where it will attach to the ceiling and glue it in place.
I'm not sure what the rest of it could be used for yet, but give me time. ;c )
