Im not sure if this is the best way. But What I would do is create a few different leaves, then a curve. And a circle, extrude the circle along the curve. Attach perhaps 3 varietys to the curve and duplicate along it. Then tweak as required. Im sure somebody will give you a far better idea though. I have used paint effects for ivy before and looked pretty good.
