Holes in Stucco

My cousins house has holes where wood was to make it look like a southwestern style home. Well the wood was rotted and was pulled out so now there holes. It's a standard framed house with brick exterior and then covered with stucco. The holes go through to the interior drywall. I'm thinking of some spray foam and/or foam board insulation using construction adhesive and a stucco material to cover/match. The holes are each about 5x5 inches. Thoughts?

Can you post some pics of the holes?

Is it just from nails where the wood was pulled or was the wood installed first and then stucco'd around it?

I think what you are supposed to do is tack up stucco wire and then apply 2-3 coats of mud but what I'd be inclined to try [painter not a mason] would be to mud in a piece of cement board, let it dry and then go from there.

Hopefully one of the masons will chime in with better advice for you.
