We describe a practical and efficient approach to represent physically realistic long-range interactions in two-dimensional tensor network algorithms via projected entangled-pair operators (PEPOs). We express the long-range interaction as a linear combination of correlation functions of an auxiliary system with only nearest-neighbor interactions. To obtain a smooth and radially isotropic interaction across all length scales, we map the physical lattice to an auxiliary lattice of expanded size. Our construction yields a long-range PEPO as a sum of ancillary PEPOs, each of small, constant bond dimension. This representation enables efficient numerical simulations with long-range interactions using projected entangled pair states.
