Pattern along path


I can't find any solution without using plugins.
Is there a way to make patterns (repeat symbol) along paths? Something like using Artistic Media > Brush, but I'd like it to repeat symbol.
It's possible and simple in illustrator, but in work I have to use Corel Draw.

I need to make something like that:

I can't use line style, because the pattern is too complex. ;/

Please, help me if you know the solution.

EDIT: Those symbols have to be smooth, so Foster's solution isn't that good...
