Thanks all!
Slow, the top, I used the lid of one of those popcorn tins you get at Christmas time, I cut off the rim, then cut a wedge out of it and soldered it into a cone, soldered that to the coffee can rim. I didnt show the solder as it was UG-LY, but functional. cut the hole with a dremel. I like to play with metal almost as much as glass.

The roof is tin I cut into a circle and soldered into a cone and soldered on. The idea was to make it suitable for outside, but she wont put it there!
