Hi Pam are you looking to cover it totally so it can't be used? You could consider a nice plaque of your house numbers.
Here are some ideas but they make doorbell covers to put over the hole and can be bought at home depot, lowes, etc. you just want to be sure the wiring is not where someone could touch it or for it to get wet.
You could make a DIY cover like this if you are trying to hide the door bell mechanism that's inside your home: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/85849936626842090/
Use some outdoor wall art to cover the spot.
Pam: maybe these ideas will help
Is this for outside or the inside bell?
Dee raises a good point. Inside or outside? We can only guess. If you want to cover the outside door bell, then what is the purpose of having one? Or do you mean a plate around it to make it more in align with your house and door?
For the inside, it would vary depending on what you have in place...
Here is a link to Amazon, they have some nice ones:
If you are talking inside, just remove it and patch the hole.

DIY Monogrammed Art That Cleverly Hides the Doorbell
Hello could you possibly post a photograph to better see your situation and area of concern?
Having a visual might be helpful to be able to offer the best guidance .....to a help find the best suggestions or potential solution for your problem.
Hi Pam, in order to help you I will agree with previous users that we need to know if you are talking about inside or outside. If your are talking about inside then you simply need to remove your doorbell and then patch a hole where you wanna cover it and If you are talking about outside then simply use a silicon cover or a plastic one. There are plenty of them over the internet selling. I had the same problem as you a couple of weeks ago when I bought a new doorbell from https://www.1800doorbell.com/driveway-alarms/ and did research and found out a solution for me and also helped you as well. Hope my post was helpful for you and stay safe!
