I don't think that will work... since they only emit red light? Someone correct me, though.
Yes, that is a huge misunderstanding of how lasers work. They are only emitting that frequency. Meanwhile, filters work by blocking all of the colors except for the color of the filter.

So, if you put a blue filter in front of a red laser you get...not much.

If that's all it took, then why aren't we seeing every color of the rainbow for lasers?
 Indeed, might I recommend Intro to Laser Theory in This Book for the uninitiated XD
you could always get a bright white led with a blue filter if you could find a reflector of some sort
