Same way you make a cone out of paper. Heat the plexi so you can bend it, and join the edges with epoxy.

The only precaution is about the heat. You'll want to heat it slowly and avoid direct heat sources such as a heat gun, which will cause the 'glass to bubble or burn. If it's fairly thin, you can boil it in water. It sounds like a small piece, so this could work. If not I would place foil on top and bottom and stick in an oven and slowly heat it until it's pliable, depending on the thickness.
