Sorry, I was just kidding. While the motorized base is 110 V , it can be customized acc. to the website.

But: Has anybody had a look at the price?

I thought it would be obvious that this is not what the op wants.

Yes you can.
They are different circuits. However, depending on the overall current requirements, you may get away with a single circuit.
I’m still interested in the inside of your existing unit. It may be quite simple to simply change polarity on the the motor for CW rotation.

Well then, you better stop reading all of these suggestions. ;)
Is it possible to take a quick photo of the wires coming out of the motor.

That is where the data sheet for your motor is very important.
You need to know the primary voltage and the secondary voltages. And if it shares a common ground. It may have secondary taps at different voltages too.
Can you share the link for your motor?.
Also, what LEDs are you wanting to use?. Voltage? Current? How many?.

can this be done?
Sure, almost anything can be done if you know what you are doing. It seems fairly obvious that you know almost nothing about electricity or electronics. And, in return, we know almost nothing about what you are trying to DO. Does it have something to do with trying to build and hang a rotating, LED-lighted, styrofoam "crown" from the ceiling without using an upside-down, motorized, rotating Christmas tree stand? Other than rotating in the "wrong" direction, and probably looking like a kludge, what's wrong with that? The parts list you finally posted (above, post #32) DOES NOT include a motor.

I am soooo impressed with the back and forth discourse as this thread continues to unwind. Perhaps this suggestion would help:
Help us to help you!
Give all the information you have instead of us keep asking you!

FLASH ALERT! Additional requirements (see post #20) have emerged: this contraption has to mount inside a hut's roof and needs to weigh less than 10 punds! No information on what kind of hut it is. Could it be a yurt? Still no mention whether the desired clock-wise motion is when looking UP at the rotating fixture, or looking DOWN at the floor from above the rotating fixture. Also no mention yet on how fast it has to rotate. Oh, wait! @Crafts4Me seems to think (see post #32) that this or that is a motor! Good luck with that!

correct i am a hobbyist and the most electronics I know is 12v strips, lights motors and fountains.
it seemed to work well till now
for the Holidays I built a lighted crown that hangs from the ceiling that slowly spins. I made it 7 branched for the 7 sheepherds (7 days of the week) to get it to slowly rotate between 1-20 rpm I used a rotating xmas tree holder however i hung it form the ceiling in an upsidedown fashion
it works well however a- its really bulky and takes up extra space, b- its the wrong voltage its 110 and I really need 220 c- it now turns ccw so my words kind of rotate backwards

i want to design a newer fancier better lit crown but was wondering if i myself can make the motor and holder so it better suits my need
since its foam core plus fabric it doesnt weigh more than 10-15lbs
