ideas for homemade planter covering

I have three DIY self-watering tomato planters made from beige 30-or-so gallon containers. They work great, but "in the sun" in my yard means "visible from the street." Please tell me some ways that I can make them more attractive with coverings or any other ideas that you might have.

Last summer my yard looked like it belonged to an ADHD serial killer who never finishes a project. I got sick of that, and the tubs were up against a fence so I built a three-sided pine enclosure as high as the tubs and stained it, and while my workmanship was just fine I wasn't really pleased with the overall effect: too big and it just looked like a massive raised-bed garden behind my normal one. individual wood covers of the same fashion might work better, but you might have a different idea and I would appreciate hearing it.
