Manly Gift - Biltong Jars

I made this gift for my fabulous father in law for Dad's Day but its a perfet gift for a mate's birthday or as a 'thanks for having us' treat.   Men are notoriously difficult to by gifts for and no one will turn their nose up at a jar (or two) of biltong!!

I've made these jars before (see here) but this time I added chalk board paint to the side as a kind of label.  The army men are stuck on using a glue gun and then spray painted with Plastikote Fast Dry.   I just wrote on the 'labels' with chalk which can be wiped off and the jars can be used again or even re-gifted!
I wrapped the jars in cellophane and a ribbon and as my french speaking father in law would say, Voila!
