The following example creates a Popup that is the child of a Canvas, and sets PlacementTarget to ellipse1, so the popup is relative to the Ellipse.

<Canvas Margin="5" Background="Red" Width="200" Height="150" >

  <Ellipse Name="ellipse1"
           Canvas.Top="60" Canvas.Left="50"
           Height="85" Width="60" 
           Fill="Black"/>
