    Ball Jar Light Globes

    I was looking at etsy where they had ball jars as light globes. I would like to do this because they look so cool, but when I bought the wide mouth jars the screw part of the jar was overlapping the fixture that I had. I would figure that you would have to sand down or cut the lip part of the jar in order to make it fit. It overlaps about 1/4 of an inch, so I'm not that far off.

    my question is, can you sand glass or what would you recommend to get this small 1/4 of an inch down so that it will fit into my light fixture?

    Maybe the regular mouth jar would fit better, or you may need to take a jar with you and size it to a fixture. That is a really cool idea.
