This Christmas Tree topper circles the tree about once per minute.

Using a Jameco.com #176050 motor, 12 volt dc power supply and printed parts: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:186453 it doesn't take long to put together and it's quite sturdy.

Step 1:

Start with the base. This is just a piece with a square slot large enough to hold the motor (with a hole out the back for wires). Connect the power supply to the motor and place the motor in the base.
