Stuff crumpled newspaper behind the hole and use a putty knife to patch it with a fast-drying patching compound. The patch should be just below the surface of the wall. The compound will dry to a hard surface in about 30 minutes.
Use a joint knife to apply joint compound over the patch. Allow the joint compound to dry, and then sand it smooth. Apply additional joint compound as necessary.
Sand, prime and paint the patched area.
