Sconce mount too small. Junction box showing.

I have an issue with a Eurofase sconce I am installing. The electrician installed a standard 1-gang junction box, but the sconce mount doesn't not cover the entire junction box. I have other sconces by the same manufacturer where we used the same junction boxes and did not have the same issue. Replacing this junction box with a round one really isn't an option since I already wallpapered the area. I guess my questions is; is there some sort of trim kit I can use? Or maybe there is another option I am not aware of.

Trim Kits

Junction boxes must be installed flush with the wall surface for a trim kit to work.

Bottom line wrong box. It should have been octagon or round. Even the screw size for a switch box is wrong. Do you not have enough wall paper left and can't buy a new roll just to repaper that area?
