You need a transformer (wall wart) of the right voltage and a diode or bridge rectifier. Many wall warts output dc.

careful man. know what kind of motor you are using. ac or dc, and voltage should be as recommended,
small motos tend to be dc motors so use batteries/ dpm't electrocute urself connecting it to the mains directly use a wal wart or adapter tlke re's said. recommended voltage will be 6vdc/
