I've heard half a ping-pong ball works well for diffusing LEDs

Opal glass would provide excellent diffusion (producing a Lambertian distribution of the light source), but might be difficult to work with in your lamps. You might try a fabric shop for translucent synthetic fabrics, a photo shop for diffusion film, or Amazon (see http://www.amazon.com/Rosco-Roscolux-Diffusion-Diffusing-Material/dp/B000B73OQY) for some material used in theater lighting. best regards, george vernon

I think what you need is a diffuser between the LEDs and the light covers. Maybe some wax paper or something similar would do...
