You need to spread some joint compound over the area you want the tape to cover. Then place the tape over the compound and cover that with another layer of compound. Make sure the layers are thin. The final coat of compound should be feathered out so it blends with the surrounding area. Wait for it to dry, then roughly sand it even.

How big is the hole? Too big a hole and the tape will not work very well. When you use tape you can buy the compound tape with an adhesive on the back that will stick to the ceiling and then cover with joint compound or if using non stick tape then apply a thin coat of compound and push the tape into the coumpond.Feather out the compound so the edges do not show. Or you can go to Home Depot and ask the salesperson working in the sheet rock dept. what materials you need and how to make a repair in the ceiling.
