How to plug the front license plate holes?

I bought my car from a state that requires front plates but live in a state that doesn't require front plates. Now I've removed the front plate frames but the damage is obviously already done: 2 ugly holes (even a bit of cracking). What's the best way to fix/cover this?

^ Fastest method short of taping, filling, sanding, priming and repainting. That's been done on this forum before with modest results for a DIY'er.

IF you do go with plugs, check the depth of the hole before you push them in. I didn't do that and ended up having to order another set because my M-sport bumper was more shallow than the plugs were able to accommodate.
