You can change your ellipse into button control with the help of Visual Studio and Blend.

Step 2: 

The next thing we'll do is just right click on your project or simply right click on your xaml page that you want to edit and select the option Design in Blend.



Step 3: 
Now your XAML page is successfully displaying in Blend. Don't take Blend as a light tool. Blend is very powerful tool for designing purposes.

Step 4: 

In the XAML window you can see a pane on the right hand side. Suppose you want to add some ellipse in your application. Now what you'll need? Simply right click on Rectangle and change option rectangle to ellipse. Now simply drag drop your ellipse into your XAML page.

Tools--Make into Control and choose a button, name it whatever you want and simply click Ok. This process makes your ellipse a button.

Step 7:

If you want to change the content of your button then simply click on your button default content that is Button and Blend open it's properties. You have to go to the properties and change the Content property from Button to whatever you want.
