Great tip!
Choose small, flat chestnuts to put inside the frame – otherwise the frame cannot be closed. But you could also gently cut away a bit of the back of the chestnut to fit, but don't forget to dry it a bit before, as the moisture from the chopped chestnuts else can form some condensation. Put the glass in place and secure in each corner using a glue gun.
