They make blank covers for "multi-gang" boxes. Not decorative, tho. You
might have to make your own cutouts.
Try Wire-Mold products, at a good electrical supply, or get a wire-mold
catalog. They have multi-gang stuff, decorative/finished.

Try the big box stores, last year I had a similar problem and was able
to buy single width plastic switch/outlet plate covers whose sides
snapped together to build up what was needed. They had ones with one
outside edge as well as ones with two snap together sides. I put a
little plastic model cement on the joints "just in case" but it probably
The finished plate assembly got covered with wallpaper, so the joints
weren't even visible.
I do remember I couldn't find one with an opening to match the GFCI
outlet I was installing, but maybe I missed spotting it or they were out
of stock. I had to carve that one from a regular toggle switch style
plate and drill/c'sink a couple of screw holes in it.
Assuming a the usual light switch and a duplex outlet, plates exist but
are a low volume item. You may have to get one from an electrical
wholesaler, which probably wouldn't like selling only a single plate, or
through an electrical contractor, or on-line.

If you go to all "decora" type openings (they fit your GFCI) you should have
less/no problem finding 4 "square" openings. And if you ever decided to
change to dimmers or GFCI or duplex switches (which you might have
considered earlier if you didn't have "wire count" problems you don't have
to hunt down a new coverplace.
Start with 2 plates, one for 2 switches, the other for 1 switch & 1
outlet. Trim a bit from the left side of one and the right side of the
other. A table saw would probably do the job easily. Then just butt
them together and ignore the crack.

to buy it, but the brand is carried by Menards IIRC. HTH
