How to close space under patio door?

I had some frost on my hardwood from under the patio door last winter so I spray foamed, and the piece of wood that was there from before won't fit. I tried facia just to cover it up but I'm not sure how to adhere it tight to the foam and the facia? Also the corners are sharp and don't know if I could cap them somehow? Between the foam and the outer edge is only a few mm.

Or, is there a more simple way to enclose this with a piece of siding or something else?

I'd shave the foam level if needed and then cover it with a piece of PVC trim.

I agree....just trim it off with whatever tool is needed and get a piece of PVC board/trim that fits the opening. Caulk the joints well and you should be good.
