How can I make too-small interior shutters work for my window?

by Karen

I got shutters from goodwill and wanted ideas of how to make them work since they are not wide enough. So far I will be getting two wide boards to secure to the wall on each side to adhere them to and make up for space. Any other crafty ideas? If I left a space in the center etc?

Space that would be in center IF i mounted them to the trim.

How they would look with no space and I would have to get wide boards on each side to nail to trim so the ends of each shutter could be attached,
