Exclamation Help! Need some Christmas garland!

Hey Guys,
I am making a few custom templates for photographers to use for Christmas cards and I am stuck on this one. I need to make or find some Christmas garland to go on the top of the fireplace. I have searched the net today for a PS brush to use to make it since making it from scratch seems terribly tedious!
Do you PSP people know if there is a brush that makes evergreen in that prog? If so maybe someone could make me a garland to go on top of the mantle with it in a high resolution file?

Also, I need any ideas on making the stockings furry using PS.

Thanks Bunches,

Loverly

I've got a variety of foliage and ivy brushes I downloaded from DeviantArt - I'm afraid I don't have the original links, but I can look through them and see if there are any that look appropriate.

Legacy~artT and Caitlin,

Thanks for helping!
I only have Photoshop CS and Corel paint. I have been searching for hours now for an evergreen brush that would work either one of those. I usually am pretty good about finding things but this time I'm stumped!

Cailtin,
You have the right idea and if I can't come up with evergreen branches then I may have to use one of those smaller ones!

Hi Loverly.

I experimented a little and came up with this.
  • Select the boots to their own layer (I used select>color range);
  • filter>artistic>film grain: 8,0,10;
  • filter>blur>motion blur: -20 degrees, 5 pixels.

Have you tried creating your own brush? I found this neat garland photo through a google search. Open image, go under Edit>define brush preset, and viola you made your own brush! I had to do a light green layer and then a dark green layer to make it look more 3-D.
